TYPES OF DENTURE ADHESIVES

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF DENTURE ADHESIVES

If properly fitted, your dentures shouldn’t need extra support to stay in place. However, many denture wearers enjoy the added security and comfort that denture adhesives, sometimes known as denture glues, provide. They can help prevent small movements and food particles from being trapped under the denture, which can cause gum irritation and odor.

Full or partial denture wearers can benefit from dental adhesives and there are 3 different types to choose from:

CREAMS

POWDERS

STRIPS

DENTURE ADHESIVE CREAMS
